Auckland Film Studios is getting $30 million from the government to expand its capacity, RNZ reports. Auckland Council is chipping in another $5m for the overall $35m project, which will see two new 2000sq/m sound stages and other buildings added to the West Auckland site. Some of the projects being filmed in council-owned Auckland Film Studios include Xena: Warrior Princess, The Chronicles of Narnia, Whale Rider, and Power Rangers.
